The Christmas Bells

Ring the bells, the Christmas bells
Chime out the wond'rous story,
First in song, on angel tongues,
It came from realms of glory,
"Peace on earth , good will to men",
Angelic voices ringing, 

Christ the Lord, to earth has come,
His glorious message bringing.

Ring the merry Christmas bells, 
Chime out the wond'rous story,
Glory be to God on high,
For evermore be glory.

Wise men hastened from the east,
To bring their richest treasure,
Gold and myrrh, and frankincense 
And jewels without measure,


Him they sought, although a King,
They found in birthplace lowly,
There, within a manger, lay
The babe so pure and holy.


Earthly crowns were not for him,
He came God's love revealing,
On the cross he died for us,
His blood forgiveness sealing,


'Tis the Saviour promised long,
Ring out your loudest praises
Every heart this happy day,
It's grateful anthem raises.


Ring the bells, the merry Christmas bells,
Chime out the wondrous story,
Glory be to God on high, For evermore be glory.
